“…a splendid disc, offering outstanding performances, well filmed against the background of the Dvořák Hall, not just of the Glagolitic Mass but also of Jealousy, the original orchestral prelude for the opera Jenůfa, and the three-movement symphonic poem Taras Bulba-two works that require background information for full appreciation. Sir Charles is in energetic form and the Czech forces bring extra idiomatic authenticity, with high dramatic contrasts well caught and the important timpani part given full force.” ~ Gramophone 2005
